ITW Plexus GREENGUARD certified adhesives
Twenty-four Plexus industrial and surfacing adhesives have been certified by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) as low-emissions products suitable for indoor environments.GREENGUARD certification means that Plexus Adhesives meet the institute's stringent emission requirements for health, irritation and odor concerns. GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified; adhesives are ideal for the assembly of countertops, boat hulls, truck cabs and other products for use in enclosed environments. Certification is based primarily on an adhesive's emissions at 168 hours (7 days) after unpackaging. Six times throughout that period, under strictly controlled testing protocols in dynamic environmental chambers that produce airflow patterns resembling those of a home or office, an independent laboratory measures air-sample concentrations of formaldehyde, 4-phenylcyclohexene, styrene and a wide spectrum of volatile organic compounds.
